Review: RPO's "Rhapsody in Blue"
February 8, 2013 at 2:40PM
The only way to start a review of Thursday night's concert
by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, led by guest conductor Ward Stare, is
to discuss the final work on the program. Given the grey winter skies outside and
the earlier program works being full of dissonances, "Rhapsody in Blue" by
George Gershwin, featuring pianist Terrence Wilson, was a desperately needed
burst of artistry, well-known themes, and good feelings.
